30's Sequined Cocktail Dress
As its name suggests, this ultra-feminine beauty of obscured sequined florals harkens back to a 1930’silver screen type of glam that you just can’t take your eyes off of.
A fluttering sleeve of embroidered net takes a daring dive down the wearer’s back, continuing past the waistband and ending in a flounced bustle at the back high-hip that is completely sexy and also oddly demure.
A lining of printed lavender tulips grins through the sheer sequined netting’s face to add interest and dynamism when in motion and the sequined and printed layers interplay with one another.
Netting and Chantilly lace fill the voids of plunging front and back necklines while the narrow strip of grey velvet ribbon, acting as the bodice’s front placket, transitions to a wider jacquard ribbon for the skirt’s front placket. Tiny faceted grey buttons on the bodice placket transition to open-work metal floral buttons on the skirt.
A single narrow strip of jacquard ribbon traces the center back from the skirt’s hem up to bodice’s the neck, ending in a tiny tailored bow that might be missed by the less observant.
A concealed chiffon ruffle attaches to the underside of the skirt’s hem to provide great shape and added swing action that makes the skirt walk like a dream.
